State Law in California, Rhode Island, and Connecticut requires all retailers to collect a “recycling fee” on each mattress, box spring, foundation, and base sold. This recycling fee is “per piece,” not per order. It is non-refundable. Each state approved the amount of the fee and it is not set or controlled by the retailer. The state programs are administered by the Mattress Recycling Council, under a program called Bye Bye Mattress.
The mattress recycling fee is $10.50 in California, $16.00 in Rhode Island, and $11.75 in Connecticut. This fee will show in online shopping carts and within order receipts as a "Mattress Recycling Fee."
